The European Union’s German presidency on Friday deplored irregularities and violence during Egypt’s Shura elections earlier this week.

Second-round polling took place on Monday and President Hosny Mubarak’s ruling party secured 84 out of 88 contested seats in the mid-term elections for the Shura assembly.

’The presidency takes note of the low turnout at these elections. It regrets that there were reportedly widespread irregularities and acts of violence,’ the statement in Berlin said.

’The presidency encourages the Egyptian authorities to investigate these occurrences thoroughly and to ensure that future elections are fair and democratic.’
